There’s no good reason for the United States or Israel to bomb Iran in the near future. And a host of prominent American and Israeli defense officials have catalogued a litany of reasons why it would be deeply unwise and counterproductive to do so.
But that hasn’t stopped top Israeli politicians from irresponsibly suggesting that Israel is preparing to launch a unilateral attack in the near future — whether the United States likes it or not.
The aim of this talk is clear: to push President Obama either into abandoning diplomacy with Iran which puts us on a path to war or else publicly breaking with Israel a move seen as politically damaging in the context of his re-election campaign.
Tell President Obama: We support diplomacy with Iran, not an unnecessary and costly war.
